Make Your Own High Low Skirt

Project restyleMake your own high low skirtWe love the high low skirt trend. The breezy hemline makes this trend perfect for these hot summer months. You can see Elsie sporting this style here. We thought it would be fun to create our own high low skirt from an existing (thrifted) skirt; making this a project restyle. Here's what we did:High-low skirt diy1. Supplies: skirt, knee length or longer, scissors, sewing machine. 2. Begin by cutting a U shape into the front of the skirt. Make sure you've marked off the highest length you want to cut plus an inch for the hem. We had a two layer skirt, so we first cut the inside layer, and repeated the process with the second layer. We definitely suggest cutting away small portions at a time and trying it on between each cut, to make sure it's not too short and that the U shape is wide enough. In the end, our U shape cut out was from one side hem to the other. 3. Once you have the desired length and shape, sew the hems and you're finished!Diy high low skirtMy skirt was knee-length to begin with, but you could also use this technique on a maxi skirt. This would create a much longer final hemline. Have fun changing up your wardrobe for this season! xo. Emma+Kinsey
